Democrats call for Presidential bake sale

I have no idea why this article is headlined Democrats Pledge to Restrain Spending because the story talks only of increasing spending, raising taxes, and apparently telling President Bush to fund the war himself. Same old Democrats it seems.

Determined to banish their old tax-and-spend image, Democrats want to shrink the federal deficit, preserve tax cuts for the middle class and challenge the president to raise money for the Iraq war when they take control of Congress next week. But it won't be easy.

The incoming Democratic chairmen of the House and Senate Budget committees said they plan to honor a campaign promise to devote billions of additional dollars a year to homeland security and education. And they reiterated a commitment not to cut off funding for U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
